Indagare Loves

  • The fireplaces in the guest cottages that are lit before you go to bed
  • The well-stocked gift shop that sells beautiful accessories and homegoods from various African nations
  • The food, which is consistently rated as among the best in the country


Most international flights arrive into Kilimanjaro airport in Arusha late at night so an overnight is required before heading out into the bush. Our preferred spot for this is Legendary Lodge. A working coffee plantation on the outskirts of Arusha with guest cottages and tropical gardens, the lodge allows for a nice soft landing with a nod to colonial traditions and some modern comforts, including excellent food. The guest cottages all have views of Mount Meru and verandas from which to enjoy them. The interiors are simple with double beds with mosquito netting, tile floors and homey touches, but it is the staff that adds warmth to the stay. They will fix you tea, a snack or a meal upon arrival and arrange for sitters or laundry or tours of the coffee plantation. They want you to feel at home and you will by the time you leave.

Who Should Stay

Anyone needing accommodations in Arusha before heading out on safari.
